, substantive actions, the demographic partners, campaign mechanics, technology, and the primary process. i want to point out that the recommendations are not limited to those five areas are even to the rnc. they can all learn something from this report. each of them is going to have a role to play. we are in the campaign business. our task will be to reach out to the most voters and build the best infrastructure ever. the policy aspects are most valuable for candidates. voters of all races and backgrounds need to understand that our policies offer a chance for a brighter future. the report offered some specific areas where republicans fell short. the are some ways the voters have been turned off. it highlighted republican innovation among our governors that have won over a new voters. it provides no ideas for the way forward. our candidates should take those recommendations to heart just as i have a. have a valuable role to play. the rnc will always be the leader in campaign mechanics. should takeallies it capabilities that can supplement our efforts in certain areas, voter registration, resear
